    Default 26 T Bucket Build GM powered by a Silverado LS Engine 5.3

    I started this build last September with a 5.3 LS engine, TH350C and S-10 rear axle.


    The LS is converted to Carb power.


    On the frame machine at brothers shop.


    The Body is a 26 Model T Touring cut off behind the front seat


    Day 2 on the frame machine


    Frame meets floor

    Outside shots my Silverado in the backround.
